Yanagawa River Boat, Yanagawa

4.2
See scenes of the old town from the canal that runs through it on Yanagawa River Boat. The traditional wooden boats, steered with a pole by a boatman at the back of the vessel, float slowly around the canal system of the historic castle town. Along the way, you'll take in sights of the trees, traditional Japanese storehouse architecture, and daily life in the town. Watch how the steerers carefully guide the boats and their handful of passengers, with the peaceful, ambling tours lasting around 1 hour and 10 minutes.

  • From the GW and Suitengu-Mae Station, go 40 min 1000 yen. There seems a sure-fire Boatman's, you can enjoy scenery alone. So let me see landscape trees along the ditches is amazing, so different in every season. There was a 60-minute course, so you have is enjoyed more.

  • Deleted it and was taking the laughter, boatman rather weird to call customers. I thought whether it is to the other party. Water isn't clean I'm muddy.

  • After the wedding, a ride received flower from the shrine. River at the wedding is not the river and taught up and say, AHA. Boatman's voice and well we have a good experience. Next time I want to ride in the tour.
